Default Folder X attaches a toolbar to the right side of the Open and Save dialogs in any OS X-native application. The toolbar gives you fast access to various folders and commands. You just click on the buttons to go to your favorite and recently used folders, manage the folders and files shown in the list, and make changes to your settings. It also fixes a number of problems in Open and Save dialogs, “rebounding” to the last selected file, putting the path listing back in the top menu, and correcting bugs in scrolling column views.
- Directory assistant: You can access the contents of your recent, favorite, and open folders right from Default Folder X’s toolbar.
- Real time saving: If you’re constantly saving things inside the same folder, Default Folder X can remember that folder for you.
- Finder management: Default Folder X lets you open up or save to any Finder window with a single click.
- Instant Recall: To help you quickly return to folders you’ve recently used, Default Folder X remembers them for you.
- Spotlight on the spot: Default Folder X lets you add Spotlight keywords, OpenMeta tags, and Finder labels on the spot, while you’re still in the Save dialog.
- Information central: With Default Folder X you get previews below every Open dialog, expanded to fill the available space. Need to see more detail? Click on the image and it zooms up to full size.
- Workflow without work: Rather than make you learn and set up a new application, Default Folder X blends into OS X.
- Updated for the latest the developer release of OS X 10.9 Mavericks.
- Default Folder X no longer hangs when the OS X metadata server (mds) is responding slowly.
- Fixed a problem with the rebound feature intermittently failing to work.
- Made the background white for text file previews.
- Added a hidden option to turn Default Folder X back on in the Dock (I can't take anything away, can I?) Command-Option-click on the Settings button in Default Folder X in System Preferences and turn on the checkbox marked ShowIconInDock, then turn Default Folder X off and back on again. Note that doing this will result in Default Folder X's toolbar and controls not appearing next to Open and Save dialogs in fullscreen applications on OS X 10.8 and higher.
- The DFX script in the Extras folder now works correctly with OS X 10.8.4 and higher.
Intel/PPC, OS X 10.5 or later
